Questions About Blepharoplasty
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is another name for cosmetic eyelid surgery. It is performed to rejuvenate the eye area, targeting signs of aging in both the upper and lower eyelids. That can include:
- Puffy eyelids
- Droopy lower eyelids
- Wrinkles, sagging skin, folds
We customize each blepharoplasty to suit the needs of each patient. You’ll discuss your options with your provider to determine what a blepharoplasty can do for you.

Aging in the eye region is complex, and blepharoplasty is one of many treatments available to target aging in this area. The best way to determine which treatment option is right for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our providers to discuss all your options.
Besides Blepharoplasty, What Procedures Can Rejuvenate My Eye Area?

What is Recovery From Blepharoplasty Like?
Most people can return to work in a few days, but if you want to conceal that you had surgery, you might have to take a week or more off from work to wait until the swelling goes down. Some patients experience temporary dryness after their surgery, which is treated easily with eye drops. In some cases, the swelling and bruising may persist for a week to ten days. If you wear contacts, you will not be able to put them in for about two to three weeks.
